Savage Wines was launched in 2013 after revolutionary winemaker at Cape Point Vineyards, Duncan Savage started his own family label. A few months after Duncan turned 35, Savage Wines released a white and a red blend to critical acclaim. Today there are 8 wines in the elegantly defined Savage Portfolio, produced in his winery in Salt River, culminating in some of the most sought-after wines on the market.

Critics Ratings

'Southern Rhone in styling, 11’s Shiraz/Syrah (62%), Grenache, Cinsaut trio is joined by Mourvédre in subtle harmony for 12. Intense wafts of aromatic spiciness mingle with piercing bramble, black cherry & plum. Delicious now & for many years. WO W Cape, as for white. – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2015, 4.5*

‘The 2012 Red is a blend of 62% Syrah, 14% Grenache, 12% Mourvedre and 12% Cinsault with 40% whole cluster fruit. The nose is reticent at first but repays coaxing with delicate red cherry, red plum and boysenberry scents with hints of white pepper and wild fennel developing with continued aeration. The palate is very well balanced with crisp tannins. You are immediately taken, or perhaps smitten by the supremely well-judged acidity and outstanding focus. It gently builds to a damson and licorice-tinged finish that would put many a Cornas vigneron to shame. It is almost embarrassing just how good this is.’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate 96/100 - Tasted 2013
